I agree. I wish we had more choices. But I don't believe this because I want to "unify Congress". If only one school of political thought dominates, all of the others are completely shut out. I'd like to live in a country with a parliamentary system for awhile, just to see if I like the politics better.

That doesn't have to be the case. It can also mean that BOTH SIDES will get their way since their preferred outcome is the same. It can also mean that, by making compromises, ONE SIDE will SOMETIMES gets its way and OTHER TIMES the OTHER SIDE will get its way. It'll then be a question for each party where their priorities are, what they value most. And especially when there is a THIRD PARTY (or even MORE), you have the situation that TWO OR MORE parties have to WORK TOGETHER to get their program done. This will of course not UNIFY the ENTIRE CONGRESS, but it WILL KILL the DO OR DIE mentality, the IF NOT ME THEN NOT YOU EITHER mindset, THE MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY WAY OF THINKING!!!

Hey, now there is an idea, WORKING TOGETHER!

C ya!

Maybe I need to clarify something I said. When I said we need to "unify congress" I didn't mean in a party-sense. I mean, we just need to get them to stop bickering all the time and focus on getting some real issues worked out. If both parties could focus one major goal, then eveyone comes out a winner and our country finally gets something done.

As a social conservative, I felt the need to support President Bush.

Personally I wish we had at least four major political parties. I can only imagine it though. I bet the country would be much more centered if we had more than two.
